Charlie Human

Apocalypse Now Now*
Kill Baxter*

*The JABberwocky eBook editions are available to our readers outside of North America. Titan Books has made them available in eBook format for readers in the US and Canada.



Baxter Zevcenko is your average 16-year-old boy. If by average you mean kingpin of a porn-peddling schoolyard syndicate and a possible serial killer who suffers from weird historical dreams.

Baxter is the first to admit that he’s not a nice guy. After all, high school is a gaping, icy abyss and Baxter is not about to allow anybody to drag him down. That is until his girlfriend, Esme, is kidnapped and the clues point toward supernatural forces at work. Faced with navigating the increasingly bizarre landscape of Cape Town’s supernatural underworld, Baxter turns to the only person drunk enough to help: bearded, booze-soaked, supernatural bounty hunter, Jackson “Jackie” Ronin.

On a mission that takes them through the realms of impossibility, they face every conceivable nightmare to rescue Esmé, including the odd brush with the Apocalypse.

The world been massively unappreciative of sixteen-year-old Baxter Zevcenko’s efforts. His bloodline may be a combination of ancient Boer mystic and giant shape-shifting crow, and he may have won an inter-dimensional battle and saved the world, but does the world care? No.

Instead he’s packed off to Hexpoort, a magical training school for MK6 agents. Part reformatory, part military school, and just like Hogwarts (except with more sex, drugs, and better internet access) Hexpoort is a much bigger game than your average high-school, and has much more dangerous players.

An attack on his new school by a dark figure called the Muti Man reunites Baxter with supernatural bounty hunter Jackson ‘Jackie’ Ronin and puts on them on the trail of the Obayifo, a tribe of supernatural media moguls and fashion designers. Together Baxter and Jackie are plunged into the most disgusting, terrifying and dangerous situation they’ve encountered yet: Cape Town Fashion Week.
